Huddersfield face Sheffield Wednesday in the Sky Bet Championship on Sunday. Coverage gets Published live on Sky Sports Football from 11.30am, whilst kick-off is currently at midday.
Since they face Sheffield Wednesday at the Championship on 22, Huddersfield will be steered by danny Cowley in their very first match under his direction. After Huddersfield parted ways with former supervisor Jan Siewert, cowley, who was appointed, left his character at Lincoln to join the club.
The Terriers manager has confirmed that he has a complete squad at his disposal without the harm concerns, before the clash amongst the staff. Yet to claim a win because he attempts to alter Huddersfield’s fortunes and in possession of one point, the changes will ring.
Also under new leadership are competitions Wednesday, who travel into the Kirklees Stadium to their first game. Headed by caretaker director Lee Bullen because the departure of Steve Bruce, Wednesday sit mid-table having played with matches.
Defensive stalwart Tom Lees may miss Monk fixture in charge, with incurred a hamstring injury while warming up to the Owls’ previous game against QPR. Joe Wildsmith remains sidelined with a long-term injury, while his six-match suspension is started by Fernando Forestieri on racism fees and will therefore be unavailable.
Huddersfield have scored only three goals during a span that has abandoned second-bottom of this table on goal difference to them and have lost their past five fixtures in all competitions. Karlan Grant scored the opener since Luton fought back to win time seven days following exploring were 2-0 victors at the John Smith’s Stadium.
Caretaker Wednesday manager Lee Bullen had steered the club to 11th after six games, overseeing league wins Luton, Barnsley and Reading, though QPR were successful in Hillsborough before the global break.
Huddersfield manager Danny Cowley:”Here is the early phase for individuals, in company I think they talk about 30-60-90-day stages, in football you don’t always get as long, so perhaps we are speaking 15, 30 and 45-days, but surely within this initial process we need to audit the Club and determine what is good. Undoubtedly there is some processes set up and we’ll run with those, we might run using the ones due to the timeframe we’re working within.
“Surely, we will examine the areas we can effect and in which we can get some quick drops and in which we think we could have the most influence. We’ll look to implement those gradually but surely, and we’ll simply make shift for significant gains. We are going to want to see where we can get those wins”
Sheffield Wednesday boss Garry Monk: There has been a lengthy time to prepare for this game. I’m a new boss coming in and I think the key is not to over-bear the players with too much things that I need to perform, but enough they can carry the notions we’re going to attempt to work on and set them onto the pitch.
“Games come thick and fast and we are likely to be moving into a busy time, so we’ll attempt to operate in between that to try to make that much better and better. It is quite a unique situation that weekend but I have really enjoyed it.”
It had been out of his brother Nicky and Danny Cowley. Just after turning down the opportunity to manage Huddersfield, over a week, he will be sat in the dugout at the John Smith’s Arena on Sunday because his new side takes on Sheffield Wednesday, live on Sky Sports Football.
Cowley, along with his brother and helper Nicky, have taken the jump from Lincoln – that are near the top of League 1 – to Huddersfield with only one league win in 2019 and occupying 23rd place in the Championship.
Cowley might have heeded recent courses when creating up the step into the Championship from lower-league managers who have fought. Paul Hurst and Nathan Jones are two who have laboured after leaving League One clubs, but the 40-year-old thinks he has what it takes to flip the position around at Huddersfield. However, it won’t be a fast fix.
“This is a mentality matter,” he said. “We’ve spoken to lots of people round the club who think that they are just one win from changing that, but I am not so convinced.”
In most competitions, Huddersfield are winless in nine games against Sheffield Wednesday (W0 D4 L5).
Sheffield Wednesday haven’t conceded one goal in any of their last seven games at the John Smith’s Stadium against Huddersfield (W4 D3 L0).
Huddersfield have failed to score more than once in every one of their last 29 home games in all competitions – if they neglect to do so against Sheffield Wednesday, it might be a record amount of consecutive games by a Football League Club in all contests, together with Blackpool also going 29 games involving December 2013 and February 2015.
Sheffield Wednesday haven’t dropped.
Since their 1-0 win over Wolves at the John Smith’s Stadium at February, Huddersfield have not led to get one minute in some of the seven home league matches (W0 D1 L6).
Sheffield Wednesday striker Steven Fletcher has not scored in three consecutive league games since a run of five between September and May 2012 for Sunderland and Wolves.
Two managers at the John Smith’s Stadium on Sunday. What a minute this will be for his brother Nicky along with Danny Cowley, handling a side which were at the Premier League last year, with been teachers and supervisors that are part-time a couple of decades back.
At the dugout would be Garry Monk, that, apart from maybe his time in Middlesbrough, has left every club he’s been in in a better place than where it was discovered by him. I believe he will be a very good fit at Sheffield Wednesday and he will start with a triumph. Just!
David Prutton forecasts: 1-2 (9/1 with Sky Bet)
